Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

Debbie Burns, Madisonville, Tennessee, pro se.

Attorneys 2:

Steven B. Ward and Doris Matthews, Madisonville, Tennessee, for the appellee, Cora Davis, Personal Representative for the Estate of Jimmy L. Smith.

Judge(s): MCCLARTY

In this appeal, the trial court determined that the woman who claimed to be the decedent’s common law wife had failed to establish her status as his wife and heir. The alleged widow asserts that she presented satisfactory evidence to prove that she was the common law spouse. As modified, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.
